Aims to deduce, from the first principles, the partial differential equations governing the thermodynamic processes undergone by continuum media under forces and heat. This work includes the classical models for linear vibrations of thermoelastic solids and also for wave propagation in fluids. more...

Die thermische Bauteilaktivierung nutzt die Gebäudespeichermasse für Raumkühlung und die Raumheizung. Sie ist ein Flächensystem und stellt eine Kombination von Speicher und Wärmeübertragungsfläche dar. Geringe Temperaturdifferenzen ermöglichen den Einsatz von Umweltenergien, wie Grundwasser und Erdwärme, ohne zusätzliche Transformation. Bei einem Vergleich... more...

The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself - everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. Peter Atkins' powerful introduction explains what the laws are and how they work.... more...

This book summarizes the salient features of both equilibrium and steady-state thermodynamic theory under a uniform postulatory viewpoint. The emphasis is upon the formal aspects and logical structure of thermodynamic theory, allowing it to emerge as a coherent whole, unfettered by much of those details which - albeit indispensable in practical applications... more...

All human activities, including mental activities, are governed by physical laws and are essentially thermodynamic processes. However, current economic theories are not established on these foundations. This pioneering book seeks to develop an analytical theory of economics on the foundation of thermodynamic laws. A unified understanding of economic... more...

The material for these volumes has been selected from the past twenty years' examination questions for graduate students at University of California at Berkeley, Columbia University, the University of Chicago, MIT, State University of New York at Buffalo, Princeton University and University of Wisconsin. more...

This book places thermodynamics on a system-theoretic foundation so as to harmonize it with classical mechanics. Using the highest standards of exposition and rigor, the authors develop a novel formulation of thermodynamics that can be viewed as a moderate-sized system theory as compared to statistical thermodynamics. This middle-ground theory involves... more...
